"this my chance to break from Mista jail" (bad day at work, or changing jobs)
"any mo letters come" (somebody messing up your program on purpose)
"chile you need to bash Mista's head in now and worry bout heaven lata" (sometimes what you have to do, well, not the bashing, but the analogy)
"sister, we're two of a kind, so sister, I'm keeping my eye on you..." - Shug singing Miss Celie's Blues (sisterhood, self-esteem esp. for this next line)
"remember your name, no twister gonna steal your stuff away" (always believe in yourself, no matter what someone does in a harmful way to you)
huh? what? who? damn, I'm always the last to know.
I'm not a huge fan of gangster flicks, but anytime Goodfellas comes on, I end up staring at my TV for 3 hours.

Lately, it's been "Walk the Line". Odd, never been a Johnny Cash fan, although his songs kinda cross the boundaries and I knew most of his hits. I guess cuz it's a film about a guy trying to make it big and pursuing the love of his life as he struggles. I can relate.

There's a scene where Jimmy Walker's boxing coach is talking to the press about the oncoming fight. He's all excited and hyped up, totally overexaggerating Jimmy's boxing abilities to the media by stating that his fighter is the "Best in the world". But when all the photographers and reporters leave, Jimmy turns to him and says "coach, do you really think that I've got a chance against this guy?"
To which his coach replies coldly "Son, He's gonna beat your brains out!!"
that shit wipes me out!!!
yeah and i like the music.......the Staple Singers.......i think that probably in the top ten of most recognizable voices of the nineteenth century was Mavis Staples......she was probably around number five or six......i absolutely loved her voice....
The soundtrack is unbelievable!! written by curtis mayfield and sung by the Staple Singers. Mavis Staples voice is so fine she makes grown men cry!!
Peace gee (...sniff....sob...)
sorry i meant to say twentieth century.....dang i dont even know what time it is....its like i was tryin to graduate last century but i dint......maybe i can do it this century...yeah Mavis Staples is fine....but she can sing too....an not only sing but has one of the most recognizable voices ever....they did a song....one of the most perfect songs i ever heard ...by the Band....it was in the movie The Last Waltz.....The Weight....The Band and The Staple Singers combined to do that song....its on the movie The Last Waltz....it always seems to be that no one can do a song better than when it was first done.....an this song is perfect...but with the Staple singers it is done even better...an then it has to be seen an the finish...they cut it off in the cd but its on the cassette...one...good song
my all time favorite is now on DVD...Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, I got out my old six shooter, cowboy hat, boots and a bottle of mezcal and am ready to watch it for the umpteenth time, my wifes going to be pissed if I shoot the tv again....speaking of pissed, I havn't been up to Las Cruces and "watered" Garretts grave in awhile.
"Sometimes the grass don't grow, the wind don't blow and the sky aint blue"...watched Little Big Man earlier, another one I can watch over and over.
